What is “EuroMillions”?
EuroMillions is UK-based and it’s official lottery.
It was launched by three respective gaming authorities: the UK's Camelot, France's Française des Jeux, and Spain's Loterías Y Apuestas del Estado. These three countries are the firsts that participated on it’s first launching and in the next 8 months, Ireland, Austria Portugal, Belgium Switzerland, and Luxembourg lotteries joined on the 8th of October 2004 draw.
There are differences in every country with regards to EuroMillions’ rules. One example to explain this is that Ireland has a “Plus” method where you will need to pay €1.00 per line allowing the player to enter another draw but with the same combination. This means, the player will have the chance to win as much as €400,000-500,000 every week betting twice on the lottery!
Another variation which is available in France is an option called, “My Million”, which allows players to add €0.50 per line.
There are things to consider when joining a national lottery based on the EuroMillions dynamics other than creating a trust account to hold your money. It’s purposes are:
A) For settling all amounts that are due
